While working with the terminally ill, Levine, director of the Hanuman Foundation's Dying Project, discovered an interesting phenomenon. In preparing for death, many were being healed. Levine also noticed that those who became physically well were often in better health than they had been before. Further study lead him to conclude that the physical healing was a by-product of a new balance of mind and heart. Vivid case histories of patients are used to illustrate how individuals learned to let go, become open to life, and stop struggling against illness, pain, and death. Levine discusses meditation and how to use it to "heal into life and death." This approach is certainly not for everyone, but for many terminally ill patients and their families it may offer new hope and peace. Mary L. Kirk, Unv. of North Carolina at Wilmington Lib.
